No. People are allowed to not like anime aesthetics, and frankly I think it is a very overused style at the moment. I passed on Astral Chain partially because of it.

Just let people enjoy their boring games so you can continue to enjoy your boring games.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

No reason to get hurt because other people don't like your favorite art style.

It depends, is the criticism about the art style, or the tropes? People who dismissed good games because the art style was cartoon instead of realistic made a big mistake, and if you dismiss Breath of the Wild just because it's art style is kind of animeish, you'd be making a similarly big mistake. If you don't want to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2 because it's a weeaboo wet dream, that I can understand. I enjoy it because I look past that stuff, but it can be cringe inducing at times.

This.

Anime to me is another art style. It's one that I'm certainly open to, but not one that I obsess over. I'm not a weeb.

Wind Waker HD, IMHO, is the prettiest game ever created. I personally prefer the cartoon look over realistic graphics. I'm sure others are the opposite, which is fine. The great thing about gaming is the variation between games, there is something for everyone.

I've definitely heard it.  It all depends on what circles you're swimming in.  I think for younger people (lower 30s and below) it doesn't seem like anime.  It just seems like the kinds of cartoons they watched as kids or the kind of cel shaded graphics they grew up with.  But for older gamers (and cartoon lovers) like myself, anime is a very specific style and many of the tropes can be off putting.  I was never a fan of cel shading when it first started, though I have enjoyed many cel shaded games.  I've also enjoyed many anime-looking games.  But I certainly don't gravitate towards those styles personally.

What is the trend of creating a bunch of teen and below anime girls that player has to capture called? That is fuckin all over Japanese games.
